Well, since this is my first post, please forgive me if this is done incorrectly or it is a duplicate. I searched for this topic and couldn't find it. I was wondering whether or not this was a McCain senility slip or confirmation of what many have suspected all along, that Mitt IS the GOP's nominee. Comments anyone?

So... after winnng exactly one primary out of 3 contests, and not even having a lead in delegates at this point he wants to declare Mitt the winner??

...

McCain is supposed to be an expert at winning elections or something?

I’m sure the GOP WANTS mitt to be the nominee. They ran the liberal mclame last time and the even more liberal mitt this time.

But I will not vote for their choice ever again. I will vote for MY choice.

Alhtough nothing is ever certain I think McCain is correct. Unless there is a huge shift in the form of an unforeseen game changer then yes Romney will be the nominee. He has the campaign infrastructer and had it in place literally for years. It is paying off. Newt was a one trick pony did well in SC due to a great debate. His Florida debates had him looking a bit lost so no debate bounce. If Romney wins Florida (looks to be the case) he will get a bump and go into even friednlier territory of Nevada and Michigan. expect a couple of bumps out of those wins. Newt will probably start to have money problems after this unless he comes close.

If the GOP nominates a pro-abortion liberal to run against Obama he will get destroyed. 25% of republicans will not vote for Obama’s twin brother. It’s either Gingrich or four more years of socialism in America, which will include Obama signing an executive order legalizing homosexual marriage all over the country. No church’s will have exemptions from performing marriages on sodomites.

This “one trick pony” will dominate the South. Willard the liberal Morman will not win the first Southern primary. Mark it down.

“Willard the liberal Morman will not win the first Southern primary. Mark it down.”

Forgive me but isnt Florida in the South?
Again Newt may run into money problems. If he does he will not be able to build a campaign infrastructure anywhere. A recent poll out of Texas had Romney winning there (it was a few weeks ago). You may be right but i doubt it again unless something unforeseen happens. Heck Newt couldnt even get on the ballot in VA and MO for crying out loud. Again unless there is a significant game changer Romney will probably be the nominee. Mark that down ;)

That's why I've said all along.... Whoever wins FL wins the nomination. Done deal. This is it for Conservatives folks. Today is do-or-die for Newt. Let's not kid ourselves and say: "Well, this is only the fourth State to vote". Look at the history of GOP Primaries..... The "process" may go on, but, it's over today. I am seriously praying that Newt can pull off a huge upset.

Florida doesn’t officially count as “southern” because Floridians are a mix or so many people from so many states and you also have the huge contingent of snow bird types who are clueless.

Mittens needs Florida more than Newt does. Mittens bought Florida with 20 million. If Newt comes close that will not bode well for Mittens.

Ref. Your Post #8: Yep; you’re right. And you know what I say? Good, by damn; good. This nation deserves what it gets. We are past due the judgment of God so let the good times roll.

When 38% of the Tea Partiers polled are going for Romney, Paul or no one in FL today, what the hell is going on? When Evangelicals are voting for a Marxist Mormon today in FL, what the hell is going on?

Yeah; your Post #8 is exactly right and this nation freakin’ deserves it.

If mitt is the nominee then obama will be reelected. We warned the bastards for 2 years... if they do force mitt upon us... we will destroy the republican party and rebuild it. obama will win if mitt is the man so we might as well kill the beast and rebuild it. **** the republican party elite.

Ode to the Grand Olde Party, and their BFF, the Obamanator.

When Newt or Paul rocks the GOP Establishment Boat,
The GOP oarsmen pull knives from their boots.
The hacking and slashing puts extreme fighting to shame,
Never, no NEVER rock the GOP Establishment Boat!
The GOP cannot win elections, by choice of their suits,
A RINO Nominee is a Democrat, - - - - one and the same.

Two Party as One Party is what they adore.
“Never give voters a choice,” ( or politicians
Are out of life-time jobs, - - forever more).

As we pay our bills holding our noses as we vote,
The Obamanator holds his cold, steel knife
To America’s throat - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - .

“Florida doesn’t officially count as “southern” “

I know there is an old adage in Florida that the “north is south and the south is north” due to the Migration of North Easterners but I was just giving the last poster a tweak since he/she was getting a bit emotional over the whole thing. My main point is that if Florida goes for Romney and it is fairly significant like high single digits to low or more double digits than more than likely Romeny will be the nominee. Newt will see funding dry up. he already has a shaky campain infrastructer so i dont see him coming back. by the time the rest of the South votes he may not be able to contest any of these states.

We shall see. In any event i know about Florida i was just tweaking you a bit ;)
that old adage in Florida where “the north is south and the south is north” due to migration from the Northeast is even more true today.
in any event whoever wins Floriday will likely dominate the rest of these primaries failing any kind of game changer.

And the GOP goes on to get slaughtered in the general as Romney is never able to consolidate the base of his own party etc., etc. We know the story. You get no points for repeating it, nor for omitting the only possible end to it.

Willard is a disaster for everyone.

I have been a Republican all my life, probably will die a Republican. I have been voting since 1974. The present GOP is not the GOP of yesteryear. Compared to the Red Threat that occupies the White House, these candidates seem conservative, but then, so wouldn’t Chairman Mao.
All war is attrition. We, the Republic, have been loosing a war of financial attrition for decades. We, the Republic are engaged in a war with those who govern us. Drastic measures are required to defeat this enemy in order to stop the bleeding that each of us are seeing in the depreciation of our savings, the constant onslaught of taxes, fees, and licenses. Each of them designed to remove our ability to live free.
If a slave is a person who works for no money, then a paid person who works with no money left for savings or investment is therefore a slave. In each case work is done, the slave is fed and roofed.
We have no choice but to vote for the candidate who will without hesitation stop the death of a thousand cuts. Bring the troops home, set them up defending our boarders to stop the invaders(illegal immigrants), while they spend their paychecks here bolstering our economy instead of someone elses.
If we need to declare war, then we do so, and like in the past, ramp it up again.
Reduction of all Federal Spending, and all taxes, fees, and other theft apparatus, is the only way to save our Republic.
All the candidates have faults and planks we don’t like. But at this time we need an Anti Federal Reserve, spend slashing nut job. It’s our only chance.
Vote Ron Paul, and plead, beg, and demand the others drop out of the race.
They are not interested in the Republic.

Who could have watched Romney in the last couple of debates and NOT come away with the impression he’s a vicious, vacuous, self-important snake-oil salesman?

Seriously... if the majority of Republicans think enough of the talking Ken doll to want him as President, I’m out of the party.

Dramatic much.

2008 Democratic primary results
Iowa Obama
NH Clinton
SC Obama
FL Clinton
NV Clinton

There is no way that today will decide who gets this nomination. There are tons of states left. Today only represents 49 delegates and will bring Romney to about 60. Newt will have 29 delegates. Both are far away from 1145 or whatever they need.

Leftist pukes (including McCain, needless to say) like to play the “it’s over, trick.”

They played that card for years with “Global Warming” - “It’s settled science, so shut up.”

This is nothing more than: “It’s Romney, so shut up.”
